Description: 1950's themed restaurant. We are one of Branson Missouri's most popular places to eat and listen to live music. Rock out to some of Branson's best entertainers, right at your table! Serving up our Famous Steakburgers and Fries. Get it with a hand dipped chocolate, strawberry or vanilla shake! We have a vintage style soda fountain for shakes, malts, ice cream, apple pie, hot fudge turtle, vanilla & cherry cokes and so much more. 1953 Henry J Classic Taxi Cab out front for selfies and other pics. Great Food! Great Entertainment! We host one of Branson's highest rated dinner shows... A Tribute to George Strait Dinner Show with Gordy & Debbie Wensel. They've won too many awards to list. It's a must see show.

We enjoyed the experience of this restaurant. We went because of the fifties vibe and milkshakes, and discovered good food and an Elvis impersonator! Fun little joint.

“Uptown Cafe is wonderful !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

Jackie B. Goode's Uptown Cafe is a fantastic place to get some great food plus entertainment! The "Steak Burger" is my favorite on the menu but all their food is really good plus you have try their Breakfast Buffet, it is outstanding! You will also be entertained by some fine Branson singers while you are there. Good food and music is hard to beat!

“Okay but not outstanding”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

We've eaten breakfast here a few times. My son loves the mini-waffles on their breakfast buffet. But, I don't find it outstanding. It really depends on when you are there and how fresh the food is. They are limited on their fresh items.

You do get some entertainment. I'm probably one of the few who don't go to Branson for the shows. It's all people doing other famous people's stuff. But, it's okay.

The service here and just about everywhere we ate could be better. You better get all you need their first time by or you might not see them again.

I'd stop and try this place. Like I said we usually stop at least once per trip for the mini-waffles.

“eat and listen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

This old time dinner with the old taxi cabs out front is a real good pace to eat .The breakfast buffet is a good price. They always have live entertainment. Good location not far off the strip. Will go back there next time in branson.

“Great place for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

We stayed in Branson for a week and this was one of our favorite places to eat. We had breakfast here and the buffet was very good and so was the price. There is live music playing even in the morning and the day that we were there he was very good. We will go back the next time we are in Branson.
